  1. 1


    Like all Hanseatic cities, Zwolle has a rich tradition of brewing beer, which came to a halt in the 19th century when the industrial revolution led to the establishment of large Pils breweries. It wasn't until the late 1990s that the tradition was revived. In 2015, Bohemean took its first steps on the beer path by heading to a brewery in Zwolle. It's not a foregone conclusion, but 2019 is the year: Zwölsch and the other Bohemean beers will be brewed in Zwols Brouwtheater.

    Order a delicious Zwolle beer and pick it up at the brewery.
